Set the tone for your company with a handbook

Many things can lead to an employer facing litigation. One option that you have to combat some of these is to have the rules and guidelines for the company spelled out clearly in a handbook. This gives employees a look at what's allowed and what isn't. From there, you can fine tune the specifics of the handbook so that it meets the needs of all employees.

Reasonable accommodations in the workplace

Employers have to walk a fine line between ensuring that their employees have what they need to get the job done and protecting the bottom line. When workers have disabilities, the company will have to determine what reasonable accommodations it needs to make for the person. This is sometimes a complicated matter because there isn't a list of required accommodations.

Plan for addressing sexual harassment complaints at your company

Employers have a duty to investigate any claims that employees make regarding sexual harassment. When an employee approaches their manager, supervisor or any other company representative with a complaint of sexual harassment, swift action is necessary. The reaction of your management team to these complaints can impact how the complainant reacts.
